The pride of NOLA makes a brilliant comeback

After being shuttered indefinitely in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, this historic 19th-century hotel — so beloved by notorious Louisiana governor Huey Long that he built a new road here from Baton Rouge just to facilitate his visits — was restored to its former glory by Waldorf Astoria. Today, guests can sip Huey’s beloved Ramos gin fizzes in the elegant Sazerac Bar, which adjoins a gilded lobby the size of a city block. www.therooseveltneworleans.com
